Our Shelter

Almost Home, Inc. operates one of only three Family Emergency Shelters in all of Adams County.  Our family shelter can accommodate up to seven families at a time.  We have a waitlist to gain access to our emergency shelter.

Emergency Shelter Waitlist:

  1. To add your name to the waitlist, we ask that you please complete the online Emergency Assistance Intake Assessment form or call 303-659-6199.
  2. When there is a vacancy at the Emergency Shelter, Almost Home will conduct a lottery to determine the next family to admit. Almost Home will call or email the identified family and the family will have 24 business hours to respond or they will be returned to the waitlist and we will move on the next family.


  1. You must be a US Citizen or show proof of legal residency. A Colorado ID is required for all adults in the household.

  2. You must provide a valid Social Security Card for every member of the household, children included. We will not accept copies of any Social Security Card.
